    I contemplated putting this in the bloopers section, since it was technically a mistake, However, I rather like the outcome. How the most prominent object in the photo are the sunglasses reflecting back. I'm sure there's an artistic philosophy or two there. So I post it here. I'm thinking maybe a better crop might make it better. Let me know what you think.

    If you had not let on that technically this turned out a blooper, I would have believed you went for a very interesting portrait style here, and one that appeals to me, I must say, for exactly the same reasons that made you put it up HERE instead of the Bloopers! Just the right decision.
    And I would not even crop it. I think it is very good the way it is with the amount of empty space next to him.
    I quite, quite like this!

    Very cool. I really dig the reflection in the glasses.

    It's a cool effect but I find it a little overblown...jus gone a bit far for my taste ..but the contrast of colour and the reflection are cool...also nice compo. :)

    Perhaps a vertical crop to keep all the detail and a slight drop to brightness? Good lucky shot though!

    Thanks, guys. Can I make it less bright even though that is how it is from straight out of the camera? I had to burn the glasses and the beard some to get them a little darker.
